Ive talked to people love sheephead or what i know as drum. I believe the key is putting them on ice as soon as you catch them. They cut the reddish laterl line out and fillet them as usual. I personally haven’t tried them but id assume they fry them. A personal tip i use when keeping fish on ice is put ice cream salt in with ice, just a couple sprinkles. Itll stay like the arctic in there. Good luck let us know how they taste!bullhead44ParticipantJune 2, 2018 at 11:52 amPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantJune 1, 2018 at 3:08 pmPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantMay 19, 2018 at 5:37 pmPost count: 185
Thanks for the tips guys. I started off with a single shot 410, knowing my girls this would frighten them. They have a toy shotgun and they’ve learned safety and respect with this.
Oddly enough i would like to get a pellet gun but all of them ive found are too long but the rascal and cricket 22s are perfect. So ill probably go this route and try and make it as interactive for them and we will be shooting from a bench. Thanks againbullhead44ParticipantMay 14, 2018 at 1:04 pmPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantMay 13, 2018 at 6:34 pmPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantMarch 16, 2018 at 8:15 amPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantFebruary 9, 2018 at 7:18 pmPost count: 185

Had a drone fly over us while duck hunting. Talk about annoying. We think it was just some kids out playing as we were not at a marsh and we could not see anyone around…but it was still annoying. I can only imagine how annoying that would be to be sitting in a tree stand and here that buzzing noise over head. If amazon can use them to deliver packages…I am sure people will find a way to use them for more than the intended use. Pandora’s box.
Had a similar experience while fishing rathbun at night way out in the middle of nowhere. No harm done just hovering over us.bullhead44ParticipantFebruary 9, 2018 at 5:00 amPost count: 185

FWIW…. I just looked at the title of the thread and see it specifically says locating “wounded” deer. IMO, dogs should not be used to find deer you think are only wounded i.e. an arrow in the rump etc.
If a hunter only thinks he/she wounded th animal and want to use dogs to verify???? I stand by my 24 hour minimum waiting period albeit very hard to enforce as well.
Thats my fault for the wording sorry about that. I wouldnt be in favor of chasing a deer that i knew was not fatally hit. Reason i postes this thread was i shot a nice buck late muzzleloader and i know i had a good hit on him. Its just where he ran absurdly dense with fallen trees and tall marsh grass. I tried and tried to locate him but no luck.bullhead44ParticipantFebruary 8, 2018 at 7:07 pmPost count: 185
I agree with everyone here. I think having a dog to help would aid in a quick recovery and like stated previously less humans in the woods scouring. If it was kept on a leash, state land had its own rules and in my mind you only need one dog. The end result would be minimal intrusion and most importantly recovery of the animal.bullhead44ParticipantJanuary 26, 2018 at 9:27 amPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantJanuary 24, 2018 at 7:11 amPost count: 185bullhead44ParticipantJanuary 23, 2018 at 4:52 amPost count: 185

Genetics coupled with good diet and a relatively stress free environment are the three keys to monsters.
I don’t think they gain many more points that what is in the rack they will group their 4 full year.
After year 5 they have the full size for the body and in the following years they will get the full effect of the rack.
Texas DNR did a multi year study of the growth and other things for whitetale Deer. You can google it and it makes intersting reading.
some good reading there.
I liked the beiber theory lol. Id never of thought those yearlings sireing any fawns. Also with the fur prices being low and not many guys trapping the past few years around me makes me think the coyote along with alot of other furbearers populations are soaring.
Makes sense that some will only get so big. The buck ive been seeing probably isnt over 160 but that guy has eluded me for far too long lol hopefully i can connect in 2018
